Hi, I’m Sandy Squirrel. I live with my mom and step-dad on Friendship Circle. Sometimes on the weekends, my older stepbrother and stepsister live with us, too. I’m the youngest—I’m 6 years old. My friend Benny also lives with us. He’s big and pink and furry. I know he’s imaginary, but he’s still fun to play with! We paint pictures together and play chess, too. Do you have an imaginary friend?
I love to climb the trees in Friendship Park. Sometimes, Miguel goes with me and we look for birds’ nests. We don’t bother them though—we just look! Sometimes, Thurgood climbs a tree with me and we read books together. Where do you like to read?
I like to run track. I go to track practice after school, and sometimes I have track meets on the weekends. When it’s not track season, my mom and I find fun neighborhood walk/run events to do. They’re usually for a good cause, like helping people who need medicine or food. How fast can you run?
